Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show

The Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show is organized and hosted by the 2nd Bomb Wing Barksdale Air Force Base with the support of the Shreveport-Bossier Military Affairs Council.


Held for the first time in 1933, the Barksdale Defenders of Liberty Air & Space Show is a full-weekend spectacular featuring displays of the latest, as well as historic, military and civilian aircraft and other related performers.

The Barksdale Defender of Liberty Air & Space Show serves to enhance public awareness of U.S. Air Force capabilities and the Barksdale AFB mission through static displays and aerobatic performances. Likewise, it allows Shreveport-Bossier City to showcase Louisiana as the home of the B-52, pay tribute to service members,  and support the recruiting arm of the United States Armed Forces.

Come with family and friends and spend a great day packed with spectacular displays at the nation’s premier strategic bomber base.
